Create Markdown slides

Slides can be created very efficiently using Markdown, presented to your audience, and shared on your site. Speaker notes included!

Check out the awesome slides demo.

Refer to the example slide deck to learn how to get started.

Link slides with an event or publication by editing the external url_slides option or internal slides option in the page front matter. For example, slides: "example" points to the Markdown formatted slide deck in the example site at slides/example/index.md. See the full example front matter which includes url_slides and slides here.

Theming a slide deck

Slide decks use their own theming system rather than the one configured in your site’s params.yaml. This enables the theme of each slide deck to be customized in its front matter.

For a light themed slide deck, consider setting the following slides options in your slide deck’s front matter:

slides:
  theme: "white"  # Reveal JS theme name
  highlight_style: "github"  # Highlight JS theme name

For a dark themed slide deck, consider setting the following slides options in your slide deck’s front matter:

slides:
  theme: "black"  # Reveal JS theme name
  highlight_style: "dracula"  # Highlight JS theme name

Note that the highlight_style option is only available for slides made with Academic v4.3.0+.
